However, in terms of victory, the Australian team still looks heavy.
The Australian team came out to bat in the second session on Friday (June 9) and Ravindra Jadeja took two crucial wickets before the day’s play ended. Jadeja was seen bowling more effectively in this innings than in the first innings. Steve Smith and Travis Head, who were the biggest obstacles for India in the last match, were shown the way to the tent by Jadeja. Labuschagne is currently on the pitch with 41*, Green 7* and remains on the pitch.
Two more days of play are left and quick wickets are needed to decide the match. India will have to dismiss the Australian batsmen early to win. If the Australian team continues to extend their lead in this manner, victory will be impossible for India. It will be interesting to see how the Indian bowlers perform in the first session on Saturday (June 10). (India vs Australia WTC Philan, Australia lead by 296 runs at the end of the third day)
